DARE devil armed robbers attacked a bank bullion van at the popular Idi-Ape Road-About close to Foodco killing three policemen, four civilians while others sustained severe injuries.
SOJ WORLDWIDE, http://www.sojworldnews.com reports that the armed robbers, who were said to have dressed in police uniform, trailed the van to Idi-Ape Road About.
Eyewitnesses told our Reporter that the robbers laid ambush at the Round About when the bullion van slowed down, they started shooting sporadically to kill and destroy anything in sight.
No one could rightly say if they succeeded in carting away the cash from the Bullion Van.
An Okada man and two policemen riddled with bullets were seen lying lifeless in the video that captured the scene immediately after it occured. Another man was shot dead inside his car while a car owner with Highlander SUV was hit by bullets but was lucky to be alive.
It was further learnt that the Police Command launched a manhunt for the fleeing robbers, with the assurance that they would be arrested.
All efforts to get police reaction was not successful, as the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Adewale Osifeso, did not pick his call or reply text message sent to his mobile line.
